Named for the Maas River in the Netherlands, ms Maasdam is the fifth ship in Holland America Line’s 140-year history to bear the name. At 720-feet, Maasdam is designed to carry fewer guests while providing more space for maximum comfort. Many staterooms feature commanding ocean views, and each suite has a private verandah. Maasdam features a teak promenade deck, two-tiered dining room, and atrium with glass sculpture. The ship also features an expansive art collection.

In April 2006 Maasdam emerged from drydock in Freeport, Bahamas after a multimillion-dollar (US) refit. Additions included several new dining venues, a culinary arts center and all new cabin amenities, including flatscreen televisions and DVD players.

The majority of the guests especially those on the open jaw voyages will tend to be loyal HAL Mariners, ex North America, and those over 60 years old. They will tend to be sophisticated, well-educated, well-heeled and traditional. The transit voyages tend to attract more Australians.
